Happy New Year!

As we move into 2017, I would like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year.

For those who may not have heard, the current syllabus has been extended to 9 years, so students starting the diploma programme both this coming academic year (August 2017 – exams May 2019) AND the subsequent two years (August 2018 – exams May 2020 and August 2019 – exams May 2021) will be taking the current course for which the book was written.

Personally I have hit upon a very good combination of books that my own students have found very useful. For day-to-day work I use my own workbook and online lessons. However, to support mastery of the material I have been ordering Ellie Tragakes’ ¬†study guide, I.B. Economics in a Nutshell,¬†for my students as well. The books have very different styles and this, I think, is why they work so well together. While my own book helps develop an understanding of principles, which is essential as a first step, Ellie’s book is wonderful at listing and ordering the course material in a way that is comprehensive yet concise. Happily, the the two books together cost about the same amount as a single textbook from one of the big publishers.

Lastly, if you would like to read my most current articles, Monetary Pollution and Hypernormalisation, please go to the articles page here.
